Time for a new site feature (in time for Xmas
), but as always, I could do with some volunteers to get things going.
The new feature is quite simple, but it could be fun.
I have called it 'siege' – what it amounts to is a very simple winners stays on affair.
A 'castle' must be defended by winning as black. (A draw will be considered a failed defence of the siege)
A queue of challengers will develop, and a winning player must play each person in the queue until they lose.
Either the winning player or the next player in the queue can start the next game following the end of the previous siege game.
So, basically it is all about trying to achieve 'winning streaks' (which I hope to show stats for) – and bragging rights, particularly if you manage to defend multiple castles at once.
There will be 4 castles (red, green, yellow and blue) for 1,3,7 and 14 time outs. So that is a total of 16 games running at one time. (I can increase this if this feature turns out to be popular).
So what I need is two volunteers to 'seed' each siege. (Your colour will be chosen at random by me.) I guess the best way to do this is to post below. Please state which timeout period suits you. When I have the full 32 people, I will upload the code, and start the games.
As always, please do not sign up for the one day timeout games unless you play very frequently.
Thanks in advance.
